Sungai Besar Umno division head Jamal Md Yunos today alleged that the Yayasan Wawasan Anak Selangor (Yawas) has not held a board meeting for two years, thereby violating the Registrar of Societies (ROS) rules.

At a press conference in Ampang, Jamal urged the ROS to investigate Yawas and Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali, as Yawas chairperson, over this.
“Since 2015 until last year – for two years in a row – they have not held a board of trustees meeting,” said Jamal, who claimed that he has proof, but chose not to share it with the media.
He also urged ROS to audit Yawas or produce the audit reports for the foundation.
Section 26(1) of the Societies Act 1966 states: “Every registered society shall once at least in every year submit its accounts for audit by an auditor approved generally or for any particular audit by the registrar”.
Jamal’s latest allegation follows his revelation last week that the general manager of Yawas was a bankrupt.
‘GM was there for years’
Yesterday, Azmin said the state government was aware of this since January and that an investigation was underway.
In response to this, Jamal cast doubts over Azmin’s claim.
“The general manager of Yawas was there for years (and his circumstances were unknown) to the menteri besar.
“I believe he only found out about it when I exposed it last week,” said Jamal, adding that this episode proved that Azmin was a poor administrator.
He urged Azmin to learn from Selangor Umno chief Noh Omar or Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak on how to administer the state.
Jamal said he would continue to expose more of Yawas’ problems in the future.
Attempts to reach Yawas general manager Kamsani Nasir and Azmin for comments were unsuccessful.
